We drink a lot of caffeine around here. We’re talking every hour, on the hour, there’s some sort of caffeinated beverage in hand. And chances are that drink of choice is coffee – preferably a bold, dark roast, hold the cream and sugar.
Regular drip coffee does the trick in the morning, but come mid-afternoon, when the day starts to drag, a little decadence becomes a necessity.
That’s where the Mexican Iced Coffee comes in. A rich, yet refreshing combination of cacao, cinnamon, and cold brew, it’s the perfect “treat yo’self” drink to get you through the afternoon blues.
Here's our go to recipe:
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
1/3 cup cold-brew coffee concentrate (Our personal favorite is Slingshot Coffee)
1 tsp. unsweetened cacao
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 pinch chipotle chili powder
Cream and sugar (optional)
MIX IT TOGETHER
Fill a cocktail shaker about half full with ice and combine with the coffee concentrate, cacao, cinnamon, and chili powder. Then, shake it up.
SERVE IT UP
Just pour the mixture into a glass, top with a bit of cinnamon, and add some cream or sugar if desired. Feel free to add a splash of water if it’s too strong for your liking.
AND, THERE YOU GO!
Drink up and go take on your afternoon.
